About The Book
Mulk Raj Anand (1905-2004) had one lament he often voiced to his friends and literary critics that his short stories were not paid enough attention.
This volume brings together some of the best and most memorable stories from Anands published collections, each of them illustrating a different moon and tone. In his half- humorous and half-ironic way, Anand draws our attention to the plight of the marginalized, the poor and the illiterate, and penetrates their innermost feelings and emotion. Straightforward, unpretentious and expertly crafted, these unforgettable vignettes of life in twentieth-century India are sure to hunt then reader long after the book has been put down.
